Electronic Recycling Day In Carroll Gardens

Friends Of Carroll Park is hosting an electronics recycling event this Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in front of the Rite Aid on the northeast corner of the park. Come by to responsibly dispose of your obsolete electronics.
Lower East Side Ecology Center accepts electronics from households and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead) as well as not-for-profits. They do not accept home appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, or air conditioners.  A list of acceptable materials can be found here The electronic waste recycling program is made possible by Tekserve. We would like to thank the Friends of Carroll Park for hosting this event.

Hi Kaia,

Great to hear - used it last time & may again.

I hate to change the subject, but...

For the past several months there has been a very dirty food truck parked in front of RiteAid. I understand that guy sleeps in the truck at night, too.

I know he gets mad when you ask him what type of meat he uses & he gets even madder when you ask if he has a permit or updated license.

Any ideas?

Awesome this is happening. But don't fret if you miss it... the Cobble Hill Association and PS29 are partnering with the Lower East Side Eco Center later in the month for ANOTHER e-waste event. October 23rd at the PS 29 school yard... plus there'll be composting demonstrations from the folks at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden too!
